LOS ANGELES (AP) - An attorney says two women won't take a truck they were offered to replace one shot up by Los Angeles police during the hunt for rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner.
Margie Carranza and her 71-year-old mother were delivering newspapers in Torrance last month when police mistook their truck for Dorner's and riddled it with bullets. Carranza was hit by broken glass and her mother, Emma Hernandez, was shot twice in the back.
They've been unable to work.
Police Chief Charlie Beck pledged to replace their truck. Their attorney, Glen Jonas, says the women were offered a brand-new truck but were told they'd have to pay taxes on it. His response: Keep the truck.
Cmdr. Andrew Smith tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/Y7fs9X ) that authorities are trying to work out the problem.
